A few days ago a friend introduced me to an ancient proverb which I’ve never heard before which goes:
Treat the Earth well: It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our children
This is something that I’ve been saying for years and it was just that i’d never quite heard it articulated so eloquently. We are just the guardians of Earth for the future generations. The world leaders seem to be under the impression that we can do what we like now and let our children worry about and fix whatever is left.
Really, what state you like the planet in for your children?
